I just finished a sketchbook that I began back on June 15th, 2019. An educational ending to a long process!
The paper in this sketchbook is one of my favorites, the same as what was in the big square sketchbook I finished not long ago: Speedball Travelogue Artist Watercolor Journal, 95lb / 200 GSM. For me it has just the right amount of sizing and texture, and although it’s just 95#, I only need a small clip or two to keep the paper from buckling much, even with lots of juicy washes. The sketchbook I finished a couple days ago is the panorama format (landscape 3.5″ x 8.25″, and twice as long when opened up). From now on I’ll be using larger ones: either the portrait A5 or Square version. ( For sale here on Amazon. This is not an affiliate link, I don’t get a commission, it’s just FYI! 🙂 )
After many rabbit-holes and dead ends, I was able to upload this 9 minute video, a tour of this last sketchbook. Excuse the amateur videography, I am a rookie still, and want you to know that recent donations to my Tip Jar have helped to pay for some of this ‘continuing ed. for the elderly’!
Let me know what you think, and enjoy!
